Wireless Densification Strategies
Preparing for 5G Network Designs and Deployments
The Road to 5G is Paved With 4G
Spectrum shortage and user demand for data has driven the move towards 4G densification. Yet even with the FCC Shot Clocks (and some state laws) requiring local governments to process wireless facility applications within specified time-frames, municipal planning and permitting processes are complex and arduous. Citizens, even as they demand better coverage and faster broadband, are reacting negatively to small cell and DAS structures in their neighborhoods. It's clear that 4G densification is a dry-run for 5G, which will require even more sites in the public right-of-way. This moderated "fireside chat" will feature a major city CIO and a wireless carrier who will discuss the challenges we currently face, and how what we do in 4G today could simplify or complicate our future journey to 5G.

Enterprise DAS — A Recipe for Success
The traditional business model of operator funded projects for SI’s have quickly dried up over the last couple of years and has shifted to a new model where enterprise customers must fund projects. Understanding this new model and how to be successful has been a challenge for manufacturers and SI’s. Listen to what Comba Telecom and Fast DAS have to share and learn how to crack the code on the enterprise market and win more projects. Quickly qualifying projects with transparency to the building owner are just the first steps to being successful. Farzin Fazdani will dive deeper into a case study on how they achieved winning enterprise projects at a blazing pace while keeping quality high and costs low for a winning recipe.
